Our History

A great many delights await the visitor to Eglish, Co. Tyrone. It is a land of drumlins, of small fertile fields, of rivers, woodlands and lakes. Significant historical events were played out here down through the years. Its sacred sites and wells have a history older than Christianity – they have rested humbly, undisturbed and unobtrusively, in unexpected places, over centuries. Its roads, buildings, hedges and bridges speak of the work that moulded the ancient land over centuries to the service of man.
